In addition to winning numerous Agency Showcase awards at the 2022 IAPD/IPRA Soaring to New Heights Conference, Plainfield Park District was also recognized as an award winner for its Scout’s Summer Fun Hunt program held last summer.
The program earned Illinois Park & Recreation Association (IPRA) Outstanding Program and Special Events Award (Division II).
Marketing Manager Angela Williams accepted the award at the IPRA Annual Business Meeting held January 28 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
Scout’s Summer Fun Hunt was a free offering to the youth of the Plainfield Park District encouraging children and their families to get out in the parks and enjoy nature and the District’s numerous amenities. Residents were encouraged to pick up an 11×17 tri-fold brochure/map that featured various locations in the District to visit. Upon completion of the fun hunt, participants turned in their completed maps and received a goodie bag of prizes.
